BROKEN BOW, Okla., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Tourism is booming in Southeast Oklahoma, primarily due to North Texans. To say thank you and welcome back, most McCurtain County lodging operators have lowered their winter rates up to 25%. * We call it our "cozy fireplace" discount.

In McCurtain County - the Beavers Bend State Park area - your weekend getaway can include almost any kind of lodging you prefer--from a rustic cottage to modern motels to affordable log cabins with hot tubs and fireplaces nestled in the towering pines, as well as unique bed & breakfasts and luxury resorts.

Charity O'Donnell, Executive Director, McCurtain County Tourism Authority said, "It has been a great year and we want to thank all of our north Texas friends. December, January and February is the perfect time of year for a 'Romantic Getaway.' Here, you and that special loved one can snuggle in front of a warm, cozy fireplace and just get away from work, traffic and the hectic big city life. In the Kiamichi Mountains, the two of you can enjoy complete relaxation and the solitude of deep mountain lakes and tall piney woods. It's a very peaceful and romantic environment.

"If you absolutely must have some outdoor activity, it is right out your back door. In McCurtain County, you can hike and/or bike miles of secluded trails, watch Bald Eagles, play mountain golf, horseback ride, explore 8 different museums and, of course, fish Oklahoma's best trout stream. Winter trout fishing on the Lower Mountain Fork River is some of the best in the country. And it is all less than a 3-hour drive from the Dallas-Fort Worth area."
